1 The Lord doth reign, and clothed is
with majesty most bright,
And to declare his strength likewise
hath girt himself with might.
2 The Lord also the earth hath made,
and shap-ed it most sure,
No might can make it move or fade,
at stay it doth endure.
3 Before the world was made or wrought,
thy seat was set before;
Beyond all time that can be thought
thou hast been evermore.
4 The floods, O Lord, the floods do rise,
they roar and make a noise;
The floods, I say, did enterprise,
and lifted up their voice.
5 Yea, though the storms arise in sight,
though seas do rage and swell,
The Lord is strong and more of might,
for he on high doth dwell.
6 O Lord, thy testimonies great
are very sure: therefore
Doth holiness become thy seat
and house for evermore.
